Tyson Fury's family sacrifice as heavyweight flies out for Deontay Wilder fight

Tyson Fury had to miss his son and daughter’s First Communion to head to Las Vegas for training camp this weekend.

The world heavyweight champion’s son Prince and daughter Venezuela were given the Catholic rite of passage on Sunday afternoon.

But the had to do it without their dad as he was getting locked in for his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder for the world title which takes place in three weeks’ time.

Fury’s wife Paris posted a story to Instagram showing the family out for a meal after the ceremony, in which she talked about how it was bittersweet to celebrate the day without her husband.

The caption for the story read: “Part of being the heavyweight champion, but makes it bittersweet to celebrate without dad”.

“Part of the job, dad’s missed another occasion,” Paris said in the Instagram post. “But we’ve had a nice day dad, first Holy Communion today for the two big ones.”

Paris and the kids are still in Morecambe, while Tyson has jetted off to their Las Vegas home to finish his preparations for his first world title defence.

The Brit is heavily favoured to beat his American rival given how their initial two fights went.

Fury and Wilder fought to a controversial draw in 2018, when despite being dropped twice in the fight, Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for twelve rounds in California, but wasn’t awarded the win.

And the next time, he didn’t leave it up to the judges, completely changing up his style to come forward and attack his rival from the off; stopping him in the seventh.

The pair were supposed to finish their contractually obligated trilogy last summer, but coronavirus restrictions shut down any venues that could have held the fight.

And when it seemed that Fury had moved on to organise an undisputed title fight with Anthony Joshua, Wilder brought forward litigation that ruled he was owed an immediate rematch with the Brit.

They agreed to fight on July 24, but a coronavirus outbreak in Fury’s camp that included a positive test for the champion himself meant that the bout was moved to October 9.

He was reportedly mildly symptomatic, but assistant coach Andy Lee told Mirror Fighting that he believes Fury won’t be feeling the effects of his covid battle when he steps into the ring.

“I recently had covid when I was in America,” Lee explained. “I was with Tyson and we both got it and the fight got cancelled due to it.

“I had about three or four days of being really tired, but I didn’t lose my smell or taste, I had no temperature but it’s a serious, serious thing and you don’t want it.

“Especially as a sportsperson, it would make you have to pull out of a fight.

“Tyson had the same kind of thing as me, and I feel fine.”

It was Fury’s second coronavirus diagnosis, with Fury saying that he also tested positive early in the pandemic.

“That’s the second time I have had Covid now, I had it back in the first lockdown and then I got it again,” Fury told IFL TV.

“Covid is no joke that’s for sure, I didn’t feel I was totally dying at that point but I certainly wasn’t going to get cleared to fight because I was still positive.”
